STILL FUNDRAISING FOR DANA-FARBER

I was glad to participate in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

This year was my 31st walk for Dana-Farber.   Along the route this year, I was inspired by Rao Kandukuri, captain of team Seshu Strong, and several of his team members. Rao formed Seshu Strong 12 years ago.  The team walks in memory of Rao’s son Seshu, who fought cancer and passed away 11 years ago. Seshu himself was able to do the walk with the team the first year.   I was also inspired and delighted to see Samantha, one of the many Walk Heroes who are currently battling cancer.  To see her standing smiling and thanking folks who passed her and her signboard along the route was very moving.

Every year, Dana-Farber continues to make progress to make cancer more detectable, more treatable and more manageable.  There's still more work to do so that no one will have to fear cancer, so I'm going to keep walking and Ray and I will keep donating and I hope you will all keep donating, too.  This fund-raising page will accept donations until the end of October.  It's not too late to directly support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance
between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Your
contributions allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives
that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!

As always,  my walk was dedicated to my Mom and Ray's Mom, who fought and endured cancer many years ago, to my Dad, who loved to walk, to all of you who help fight cancer by contributing on this walk page, and to those you honor and remember.
